World Blitz Championships

So Alexander Grischuk won the World Blitz Championships in Astana in Kasakhstan. Although I’m not a fan of blitz for improving players (it fosters habits that are bad for slower time limits) the nice thing about this event was that the games were filmed.

Here are a couple of the games, more of which can be found at Youtube. Enjoy!
